PTI decides to ‘cash in’ on ex-FIA official’s revelations against Sharifs


 

LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to "cash in" on former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) official's startling revelations against ruling Sharifs. According to sources, the party was taking a keen interest in the offer made by Inamur Rehman, a London-based former FIA official, in which he said that he was ready to submit "proofs of corruption" to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) against Sharifs if summoned and provided security. It might be mentioned that Inamur Rehman had held a probe against Sharif family in 1993 on alleged corruption charges in Lahore-Islamabad Motorway project, Park Lane flats and money laundering through different fake foreign companies in New Jersey, US. Rehman in a latest interview with a private channel had disclosed that he left Pakistan after being "threatened" for holding an inquiry into corruption charges against Sharifs in early 90s. He said that he was ready to submit "proofs of corruption" in motorway project to the JIT if given security. He said that he had no enmity with Sharifs, and his only motive was to serve Pakistan by handing over "documents" to investigators. The former FIA official had also disclosed names of some individuals and companies "who assisted Sharif family in alleged money laundering". He claimed that money was transferred from Pakistan to the United States under the name of a fake company "Chudern" for Al-Taufeeq and Hudaibiya Engineering. He alleged that some fake accounts were also opened in banks of America and Zurich to transfer money. He alleged that Hussain Nawaz, son of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, had assisted Javed Kiyani in managing the fake bank accounts. Anyhow, the PTI insiders told Daily Times that the party leadership had decided to contact the former FIA official in London in this regard.
